Blake Shelton defends 'Minimum Wage' song
"On the phone. Right now is blake shelton it. We got new song out today We do and It's we kicked around actually releasing this song last last year at the end of the year december and and happy anywhere still kind of having its moment at country radio and we didn't want anything to get in the way of that record because that's been fun record to have and didn't want anything to interfere with what it what it may go on to do And so we backed out. And now we're releasing this all minimum wage. Which i've actually had recorded now for Maybe a year or something and and just you know everything. Kinda got thrown spun out last year. Obviously it did for everybody else and and So we're gonna come with a new album that this'll be the first single off of that album and we're pumped about it just because it's it's up campo it's fun and fully energy and and I definitely need some of that in my life and hopefully Everybody kind need some of that. If you put out a song and it does not go number one. Is that a disappointment to you Well that's been a disappoint not just at this point in my career. I mean if you're going to release a solid radio. I mean you're lying to everybody if you say it's not in the back of your mind that you hope it goes number one. I mean you otherwise. You wouldn't even release it to radio and go through the promotion process and you know all the things that you that you have to do to to be a part of that world. I mean you know. I mean you see. Every week somebody is trying to get their record number one and and You know for me. Not that i expect it to go number one but at the same time. I'm disappointed if it doesn't just because i know how hard everybody on the team works to get those things to the top you know and it just try to get done. Blake shelton on with us. What was the first job you had where you made minimum wage our roof houses in ada oklahoma and they may have been more than minimum wage. I think about. I think i got paid eight dollars an hour and i feel like way back then. Minimum wage might have been six dollars an hour or something closer to that. So man i. I stepped right into the big money. Roofing houses you know. I wrote houses to arkansas. But i didn't. I don't know if you started like i did. I had to be tear off. Guy i before i was actually the guy with the shingles is that. Was that your pat. I never worked up to shingle. In two years. I was a tear off and carry. I could carry by the end of the road. I can carry two bottles of shingles up at a time on on my shoulder which is like a hundred and twenty pounds. That was the only time in my life. I was ever in shape. Of course i was still a teenager. So i had that going for me. How do you feel about the return of the mullet. What do people say about yours back. In the day versus you know kind of the new generation of the mullet. Here's how about it. Because i'm a little jealous And that's been honest. i'm. I'm a little jealous that i don't have the mullet. But here's what i've found. Is you know you look at morgan. Wall he's a good looking guy and he's in shape and and when i've tried growing my mullet out this last last year during the quarantine time i realized for me. You can't be fat and have a mullet lock. You know what. I mean in order to get away with it. You have to have something else going for you and you know back in the day when i had one man. I was skinny. And that's not how it is anymore. And so i'm gonna have to. If i'm going to have the mullet. I gotta lose hundred fifty pounds. There's a lot that's a big number man pat is. I'm sorry bobby. Blake this whole controversy about minimum wage. When it finally gets to you that people are. I don't know whatever they are. Do you roll your eyes or do you go to this Well i've learned over the years not to just roll my eyes. You know until. I really get to the bottom of whatever. The particular controversy is that But when i saw this on was i i mean. I don't want him everything but it kind of a role of the is. Because i think if there's if you can find something offensive about this song i mean you're either you're just looking for fight or you're probably not a country music fan to begin with you know it's i. I really can't draw connection between anything controversial. And i love song. But you know it's It's the times we're in. i guess but we're just. We're proud of the song and and we love it. Which is weird. Because as soon as i heard about the controversy i came on and was just railing against these overly woke folks. It's what i was calling him. And then i started to get pushed back for standing up for the fact that it was a metaphor for life in that i was someone who grew up on minimum wage for most of my life. I wasn't. I was just so irritated in ronnie dunn fight. The standing up for two like why in the world is happening with folks. Think you just gotta go okay. Well that's your your take. We're we're going to keep going on with reality on this road and you can take whatever turn you want to Because it's at the end of the day it's a song about if you got love and then you didn't you've got the everything that matters you know And again if there's something offensive about that then i this is not the the world i wanna live in. Have any of your other songs sparked up debate. Like do people get upset about hillbilly bone. Because you know you know you know. Only you know only time that people get upset about that song when we perform it live and trace sexually points In the in the area makes it makes it big deal every time it gets to the chorus like. He's got a point to himself to be sure you understand exactly what he's talking about. I don't know. I don't know i don't know what to say. Oh i i thought he he points to a hillbilly and the crowd. Yeah that's right that's not me up. Blake shelton's got a couple more questions for you. I was talking to devon dawson recently. Who is one of the writers god's country and he told a story about how they they had sent playlist to you a few songs and god's country was one of the first ones on that playlist. Can you just kind of tell me your version of the story. But hearing god's country i was well. I don't think. I heard the other song that they spent because wanted god's country was the first song on that email or whatever i got and i stopped right there. I was on my There's a rumor going around that. I was on tractor But i was actually on skid steer different kind of equipment. But i had a both in that thing and i was i was mowing and doing some things and i figured out how to our. He's not think. I even tried to open the email to see if i could learn how to use my bluetooth and and And i turned it on. And then i was. I was shocked. I was blown away. I couldn't even believe what. I was hearing. 'cause i knew that it was it was a it was game changer. It was that lacombe. Nothing would be the same for any of us involved after this song is far from a career standpoint and and what it was going to to do you know and in my mind anyway because every time you record song you say oh my god this could do this or that And this one seemed like it would just almost Start a new chapter for me. And it did to be honest It's one of the few times that actually had a vision and trick that the my last question for you if twenty eight number ones now twenty eight like once concerts return. You're at the point now where you could do. Two nights in a city playing pretty much all number ones and other massive songs didn't quite number one is that something that you'd want to do is do two nights and a city making sure you get all the hits in what i wanna play in front of a of a full crowd and two nights probably will be one night too many from i guess i guess if people would promise they would come back in the second half then. Yeah that would be a blast. I used to always think that about george strait. I always thought it'd be cool if he did like a marathon like a four or five hour concert just all these number one hits and it was on. Hbo or or something like that. Yeah that's my big idea for george. Anyway he needs it. I think he's he's in the business for some career advice so i'm gonna hit him up. Tell him he loves it. He loves to work. I'll tell you

He is now the only president to be impeached twice the article of Impeachment was incitement of insurrection. Obviously we know what happened on January 6th when these pro Trump supporting mob stormed the capital, and everybody had to take cover. You know, it was just a crazy scene this past the house. 2 30 to toe 1 97 with 10 Republicans voting against the president. Julia tell us about, you know everything that led up to this moment.

And then seven days from now, a week from now, President elect Joe Biden will be sworn in as the 46, president of the United States. So what happening But in leading up to impeachment, obviously what sparked? This was the insurrection. We saw that President Trump Help that rally in Washington, D C, telling the attendees of his rally to go up to the capital to voice their displeasure with the election results, and many interpreted his remarks as incitement, and it would appear that he did in sight this group of rioters to go to the capital now, Obviously, there were thousands of people to attend President Trump's rally, which was to essentially protest the electoral college results. And then we saw that you know some of the People. Large number of them did stormed the capital when they stormed the capital. It was during the certification of the electoral college vote had senators Josh Holly and some there's had crews essentially proposing challenge the electoral college results in states like Pennsylvania. So we saw that there was essentially ally going around that there was this white Red voter fraud in the 2020 election. So during the certification process, the protestors stormed the capital, putting the lives of the vice president of the United States at risk of the speaker of the House of Thine eyes. Take that risk as well as lawmakers in the chamber at that moment, so we obviously know that five people were killed as a result of these riots, so it was a very deadly insurrection.

But today was President Trump's term in the spotlight, and he was impeached for the second time. It wasn't a surprise. We knew that Democrats would have the votes. But what's getting a lot of attention is the fact that Republicans voted to impeach him and including Congresswoman Liz Cheney, who is part of the GOP leadership in the House. Yeah, I mean, it's

Trump’s social media bans are raising new questions on tech regulation
"We've all heard the news This week, Some of Silicon Valley's social media giants have given President Trump the boot the moves by the likes of Twitter and Facebook and sparked a global conversation about who has the right to regulate speech and what role the big tech platforms should play in policing the Web. Rose. Lydia Manta leader covers technology for the show and joins me to talk through all this little you've been following some of the reactions to the trump banned by several social media platforms. What are you saying? Yes. Oh, Marco's you might imagine there's been a wide range of reactions to this. Some people are applauding the social media platforms for banning Trump, even though they say this should have happened long ago and then others have some reservations. So, for example, German Chancellor Angela Merkel called the span problematic that it should be up to legislators of a country to decide how speech is regulated. This is a critique that we heard from officials in the UK as well as France, this idea that In a democracy. There should be clear laws and regulations around acceptable speech online and that these decisions should not be left up to tech CEOs. I mean, even here in the U. S air our conceptual limits to free speech, the classic formula of not shouting fire in a crowded theater, for example, But it is really complicated. How do other democracies regulate? What ends up on social media in the U. S. Because of US laws, social media platforms air basically immune from being held legally responsible for what users post online. But that's not the case in other parts of the world, like in Europe and Germany, in particular, leads the way on legislation that cracks down on certain types of online speech. So in 2017, they passed this law that basically says That social media companies have 24 hours to remove hate speech or face huge fines. And now lawmakers in Germany are looking at what happened in the U. S on Capitol Hill last week and saying This is a reason why we need to strengthen this law. How would they strengthen it? Basically, they want social media companies to be required to when they see cases of hate speech and other criminal activity on their platforms to take that straight to the federal police in Germany so they can investigate. This is something German lawmakers were debating, adding to the law last year. It didn't pass because of privacy concerns. But it's interesting that now because of what Happened in the U. S. Some lawmakers in Germany are saying look clearly more needs to be done to deal with online speech before it escalates to real world physical violence. So going back of that German law you mentioned the one that was passed in 2017. What is deemed illegal denying the Holocaust hate speech against minorities. And these are things that Germany outlawed after World War two. And since 2017. They've applied these rules online to France. Also tried to pass a similar law last year, cracking down on some of the same things, but that was overturned by the courts there, interestingly enough because of free speech concerns, So that's one criticism of this kind of legislation. And then another criticism is that it deals with very narrowly defined hate speech, and not with things like disinformation, conspiracy theories, all the kind of problematic stuff that experts say helped lead to the capital Riot. Last week, right? That kind of disinformation conspiracy there. So what our country's doing to tackle that that seems to be really fundamental. Just last month, the European Commission came out with what's been described as a landmark set of proposals to require social media companies not just to do more to address hate speech and disinformation, but also to be much more transparent about what they're actually doing to deal with some of that in their platforms. Now they're years away from actually becoming law and being enforced. And until then, Ah, lot of this policing is going to be left up to the private companies themselves to do even in Europe, which again is considered to be well ahead of the U. S. Clearly something the U. S is going to have to take a lot more seriously. The world's Lydia Manta leader. Thank you very much. You're welcome, Marco.
US terror designation for Yemen rebels raises famine fears
"The trump administration's terror designation for Yemen rebels who dis is raising Thurman fails Washington is out the door decision to designate Yemen's Iranian backed rebels as a terrorist organisation has sparked confusion in aid agencies and warnings from the U.

Yemen's who the rebel movement a foreign terrorist organization this could seriously complicate future efforts to deal with yemen's humanitarian crisis and bringing the war to an end with us as yemen spokesperson for the norwegian refugee council mccormick. She joins us from auden. We need to quick reminder rena who are and what they represent to the state department specifically under mike pompeo sarala are otherwise known as to who 'this and they're the movement that took over the cups to of yemen's on a abide five years ago which sparked at the us to get involved in saudi led coalition in support of the government at attempt to remove them they significance for the united states has been an their accusations that the unser allow movement are backed by iran which of course for the us has broader regional at considerations and so it seems clear that this latest move is part of that regional strategy to try to minimize iranian influence in the region. This is quite fresh news. What is the reaction from yemen to do. Most people think this plan designation of who these as foreign terrorist organization was politically motivated. Well the news came in for us yemen time just this morning and so people are really trying to get to grips with us. At the moment. It's been mixed reactions here in yemen. Answer the otherwise known who have come out and in turn accused. The united states government of acting in a terrorist way other reactions from aid organizations have been the same message that has been given to the united states government for the last few months when such a move was being suggested which is that on many levels. This would be catastrophic and it would certainly have a widespread impact on the humanitarian situation. Here on the ordinary of yemenis who are trying to live their lives your organization the norwegian refugee council. What are you looking at are concerned about. What the implications of this they're going to for our ability to run an office hire staff and get goods into the country get critical supplies like food and water and supplies to help fight kovic around the country to the communities who need it's the most get materials for building emergency shelters an widely the kind of impacts that. We're looking at art. That really the feeling is that this will be devastating for the yemeni economy which is already in ruins after more than five years sustained violent or is it your expectation that the incoming biden administration will reverse this plan decision to label the husky rebel movement a foreign terrorist organization. It may not be possible to reverse this decision on if not then it is possible to put in place. The kind of protections in safeguards that are needed so these would be safeguards immediately and for all humanitarian activities near monitoring supplies. It also safeguards so that imports of critical and food and other supplies can come in and out of the country would go a long way towards mitigating or softening some of the impacts of this designation and as for the rest we i suppose we will have to see on the twentieth of january when the new administration comes in we are asking for the biden administration to make yemen one of its number one priorities on day. One re mccormick the yemen spokesperson for the norwegian refugee council. Speaking with us from auden. Thank you very much here. Very welcome

Audioburst: 'Indexing the world's audio' with CEO Amir Hirsh
"So amir a little bit about audio bursts. What are you guys do. And how did it all start So it all started about five years ago when we started our crazy mission hall indexing. The world's audio audio your burst in a sentence is the world's first for now on lee. Hug your search and delivery platform we coming from a background all of analyzing audio and understanding talk content and the way it meets technology for civil of our years. The cofounder coming from different origins. We undestood the special quality and value. Set all your content and specifically talk or your content has in it but felt that it was a treasure that no one has tapped into and when we sat down and brainstormed about how come it didn't connect and it didn't pick up the same way that internet has discovered text and video. We realize there were several technological components missing around it and we set up on a mission to build the technology and the bridge the gap of making all your content accessible to users. There were several missions in front of us that we developed. And we've done and we've built an ai machine that listens to talk on your content and analyze it and makes it accessible by doing essentially three main steps. The first is that it tries to understand into break it up into the different moments. The different stories within our long audio content such as podcasts and radio shows and digital archives that we cover multiple topics and we wanted to mark the points where each story like that begins and ends in an automatic scalable fashion way. The second step that we've done is that we've described each such short clip that we call burst as much as possible with as much made it as we can so we'll be able to pull it. Afterwards in find it when users will be looking for it and doing it using full transcriptions and keywords and entities extractions and source and time and we're measuring speed of talk and whether there's one speaker and more and there's about twenty to thirty different dimensions that we describe each. Such clipper such bursts and the third is we wanted to make it extremely accessible so we wrapped all of our repository and that huge index of the reach media world with his many rappers in layers for third party products to tap into api as decay both on mobile android iphone wave imitable player wordpress plug ins et cetera in an essence with while building. Or after we've built those three components will we actually have done is allowed users wherever they are whenever they are access. The world of rich media mainly podcasts and little bit of radio and swell through our interfaces users can now search can now listen to topical. Playlist can now access topics that they didn't know the podcast service have answered and ken sparked their imagination again by listening to audio into enticing on your audio while they run while they exercise while they drive while they do the dishes pretty much while they live and not forced to stop their lives and stare at the screen in

And how did it all start So it all started about five years ago when we started our crazy mission hall indexing. The world's audio audio your burst in a sentence is the world's first for now on lee. Hug your search and delivery platform we coming from a background all of analyzing audio and understanding talk content and the way it meets technology for civil of our years. The cofounder coming from different origins. We undestood the special quality and value. Set all your content and specifically talk or your content has in it but felt that it was a treasure that no one has tapped into and when we sat down and brainstormed about how come it didn't connect and it didn't pick up the same way that internet has discovered text and video. We realize there were several technological components missing around it and we set up on a mission to build the technology and the bridge the gap of making all your content accessible to users. There were several missions in front of us that we developed. And we've done and we've built an ai machine that listens to talk on your content and analyze it and makes it accessible by doing essentially three main steps. The first is that it tries to understand into break it up into the different moments. The different stories within our long audio content such as podcasts and radio shows and digital archives that we cover multiple topics and we wanted to mark the points where each story like that begins and ends in an automatic scalable fashion way. The second step that we've done is that we've described each such short clip that we call burst as much as possible with as much made it as we can so we'll be able to pull it. Afterwards in find it when users will be looking for it and doing it using full transcriptions and keywords and entities extractions and source and time and we're measuring speed of talk and whether there's one speaker and more and there's about twenty to thirty different dimensions that we describe each. Such clipper such bursts and the third is we wanted to make it extremely accessible so we wrapped all of our repository and that huge index of the reach media world with his many rappers in layers for third party products to tap into api as decay both on mobile android iphone wave imitable player wordpress plug ins et cetera in an essence with while building. Or after we've built those three components will we actually have done is allowed users wherever they are whenever they are access. The world of rich media mainly podcasts and little bit of radio and swell through our interfaces users can now search can now listen to topical. Playlist can now access topics that they didn't know the podcast service have answered and ken sparked their imagination again by listening to audio into enticing on your audio while they run while they exercise while they drive while they do the dishes pretty much while they live and not forced to stop their lives and stare at the screen

I am not as crazy about pens as Mike is over in panic media, I'll tell you when I found the platinum thirty seven cents.

"One of the. Things that goes along with this time of year especially, if we live in forested area is the switch of bushfires. And one of the images that I like to US tonight to help us to. Approach. The teaching of the Buddha is the image of the approach of a bushfire. Anyway and it's not only La Stralia that bushfires happen and they've if you haven't experienced it personally, you know that. FIS. A lot of. Danger and also. Can Cause Havoc. Destruction and loss of life. And when a bushfire is approaching before the actual fire and reaches an area. Sparks from the fire a pushed ahead of the actual fire front, and these sparks that carried on the wind which the fire itself generates. And it's very often these. Sparks that go ahead of the fire, which actually ignite vegetation before the actual five fund comes. And also these sparks which get into the crevices into the Gaza into the. Foliage, around the house which actually start the fire at that house, those premises and stock the burning long before the fire front actually comes. So one of the things you have to do. Long before the five gets there and win the sparks are being pushed ahead is that you went down the whole area. You went down the the roof and the apes and the randers on the walls and all the arch gardens and vegetation around the building so that when the sparks land That I land onto a damp area. And they don't have anything that can ignite. And spock's themselves carry heat with them. The spock's themselves carry the fire. And even when they end on a burned area. Particularly if they big, sparks Being fanned by the wind that's coming behind them. They may not be extinguished immediately even though they're landing on the Dan area and there's nothing to support their ignition. Alkatiri should burn until they burn up there on fuel. But because not fade by new fuel, they eventually go out and they don't cause any damage. And if you have a fire. Coming toward you, it's not enough just to wit down once you have to do it continuously until it's too hot to stay out or until the fire fund passes may not come directly to the place where you are might pass some distance away and the sparks. All. It actually arrives on your doorstep, but you can't stop until the fire has moved completely out of your area. Now. This image of damping down. And preventing any further damage happening and the image that the sparks carry within them, their own fire and the has to burn up. Even. If it stamp around them, they don't go out immediately. This is a very good image to hold in the mind to understand what we're doing in terms of trying to leave a deliberate life. In cultivating the spiritual path. Trying to develop a life style. And an understanding of life that conforms with reality. But which doesn't. Guarantee that we won't have absent Dansk that we have to deal with in alive that we won't have five funds and sparks coming into our territory. But when we live in a deliberate way and especially when we use the guidance given to us by the Buddha. To cultivate. A. Strong, and stable. Environment. That is our mental environment, mental and emotional environment. We have the capacity to set up a situation where even when those sparks. Come right up to the doorstep they fall on DAB. Ground. And they don't ignite for the fuel and create havoc. The Buddha lined in the big picture of life terms of the will be Biden's which. Come into all our lives regardless of who we are and how will we practice where we were a good person always. Just bumbling along, we try to consciously cultivate wholesomeness and wisdom in alive. With a we downright maintenance Martin and don't care about. The quality of our life and our relationships. These eight will the winds will blow on all of us. and. These are explained as a pair of opposites. And the Opposites are praise, and blame. Loss and gain. Fame and ill fame. Or even, obscurity. which some people find even worse than being Torius but well known. And Happiness and unhappiness. These adjust labels to help us to. Have a sense of these. Opposites which arise. In. The world and which arise in our experience in different degrees in different combinations from time to time. Nobody uses these to. Establish. and. Understanding that these go along with live. These ups and downs in different degrees. In different ways. And as I say in different combinations. But when they arise in our own life, we very often think that something's gone wrong that it shouldn't happen. It's a mistake it's not fair. Where in fact if we our eyes and look around? We'll see that this is what life contains for everyone. Different degrees and combinations. and. It provides us with. The bigger picture of what life contains. And what we're dealing with in spoonful life is not being. Thinking we'll be able to. Avoid these or medicate them completely. What we're trying to develop is an understanding of them, what causes them and how we can deal with them. How we can make peace with them, how we can learn from them when they arise. You now life. And it's Important to understand that, we not just trying to learn how to deal with and make peace with the bad things that happen to us. Because we can be swept away just as much by the good things that happen the things that happened which. We've been tall which we assume which helped the people think. Automatically guarantee. Happiness. Such as fame. Such as guiding. We see examples all around us of people who've apparently had all size sings. and to unhappy. Who Haven't been able to use those things in a way which has.

"Why we shouldn't virtual instruction is that well when we tried it in the spring, it didn't work and it was trash. Can I just tell you that? I know a fair number of teachers Aaron used to teach, and so she's still friends with a lot of teachers my future sister-in-law's a teacher. Of all of these teachers I know there's not a one that isn't breaking their backs trying to figure out how to do the best possible instruction. They can for their kids this year well, also in the spring like everyone had like six days. Thanks to like workout this new systems. Work thank you very much. Mike. I don't know why parents don't understand this since you got it so simply, but yet they don't get it in their other spring was terrible this spring I don't think they even at sixty s it might have had less than that but your point is completely accurate like it grinds my gears so much when I hear people say, Oh, we'll spring stink and I don't. WanNa do that again you think it was good for the teachers. It was terrible for them to like I just makes me so angry when people are like Oh gosh, it was so bad. Let's not do that again. No, it won't be like that again. Will it be perfect? No we'll be as good as in school probably not, but you won't get dead and that seems like a pretty good trae. Yes that is one way to put it. It's definitely much more effective than you weren't catch the virus. I'm sorry it just makes me so angry, it really really does. So I believe I shared on this show. Before like my my wonder I think probably spoken about this of like what we will refer to in the future is this time. So now, Supreme Bisley I said my is that it will be called the virus. But now I think it's going to be called just the pan-demic. That's how this time will be known because that seems to be. The phrase that is getting used a lot the global pandemic, the global pandemic ing has what going to be called because like I've done a few this, but this seems to be this hesitancy from a lot of people to actually say. What's going on which I find very weird. Yeah. A little bit especially in business contexts you know people are like the current situation these times like we all know what it is like. We all know that it is a pandemic or that we are going through a time of something called covid nineteen like just call it what it is. You know I agree I find that interesting I again I feel like I know why people do you feel like trying to be like positive in a business context not referencing the bad thing kind of make sense but like it's also ignoring. Something you know like if if it was like localized and To an area. Maybe I'll get it a little more but Yeah. These unprecedented times. Or has and the chat says these trying times like I'm kind of over this over these phrases now saying same, just call it for what it is like. We all know what's going on like there's no point sugarcoat. Because SUGAKO. Can can cause issues. Like I don't know if you felt this way, I have a little bit well, like my brain is trying to rebel against this a little bit of time to catch myself and tell me more so like they'll be like just these little thoughts that I'll have where it's kind of like. That's okay. And then my Brandon Nana No. It's not okay. It has been like you are living in a time now where like everything that's happening around you is normalizing. you hit you hear like case amounts, death tolls. Just all these things in your brains like well, that's better. No, it's not bad. Still really bad just not as bad as it was before. So or just like there's just time like Thomas Pasta it's kind of like. I'm okay. So I'm probably okay right like. Myself doing that stuff so like. kind of I think. When I feel that way, it gives me I feel more empathy for some for like people that. Are living their lives that way like whilst I don't agree with what they're doing link. I also can't say that my brain doesn't try and do it too. Yep Absolutely for whatever reason my my like Novus nature brings me back again you know. I agree with you there is a level at which people being really stupid. I think that there's a different level where people are kind of just like. That looking at the context of their lives and they're like I'm okay. Everyone I know is okay because I s because I know nobody personally who has tested positive for karnal really I know no one oh. Wow. Right and I can't even recall of. I know I. Know People who like like Friends of Friends of friends, right like my own friends my own family. I don't know anybody that's had right. Again like I've heard stories through friends of friends who have had it but I don't know these people, right so it's so there's I can imagine that people like. Tony in discord same people are over it and I completely get that feeling where it's just like I don't like this. Everyone I know is doing fine I'm doing fine ago. Everything's Okay right and like I can feel my brain doing it. But I feel happy in the fact that I know I can catch those thoughts. So I'm saying this as kind of like I want people that listen to this show who may also be feeling as to kind of like no, it's okay if you feel that way but don't act on it, right? Yeah. I agree because like I feel it too. Well, like this is part of me and it's like all. Is. It good now like we good, we're all good, right. And then realize no win all good like stop being stupid when not good. So I just wanted to talk about that because I think it's important. We've been doing this for like nearly five months, right? Like things are going to start getting wid. It. I'm super scared about the wintertime because there's no indication that America's going to be any better than and when we don't have the release of just being outdoors I, don't know what we're GonNa do but I mean we'll figure it out. I'll let me change subjects on you quite dramatically i. saw this really really good website recently, and I wanted to know if you've heard of it and maybe no about how was created it was it's it's addresses podcast mentorship dot net, and I'd love to hear a very quick update about it embassy you happen to know how this website was built.

"The Mike it's the hundred and eightieth episode of analog, one hundred nate. Do. You know what? That's reference to not a clue. So, Danz. The highest points that you can get on a like a single round guess you'd call it is like three triple twining's, which is one hundred and eighty, and when that happens in dots, the announcer will always say one, hundred, eighty like that. Let me ask it on. Wasn't Brenton knows what I'm talking about right now. So this is where I was going darts are things here. In that DART boards exist and sometimes it bars and sometimes at people's homes but I can't tell you that I am aware of anyone that I know that has a darn clue how to score a game of Darts. But my my ignorant perception is that easy you just go down what does that mean? It's a circle no, the scoring. What are you talking about with the scoring scoring starts? I think it's A. Five hundred one. And you have to. Go down to zero like the first posted to get down to zero wins. I didn't even know that much and you every like the thought board is segment at right. And every segment has a points value k. but how can you tell because there's like the numbers are on the outside but the there's different Poe lake there's different segments within each pie slice, right? Okay. So that the white segments of the To the number if you look darts. To call a picture hold on. So bring up a picture of adults blood. We're going to have to try to get jammed up a picture in for this chapter because I'm already getting confused. Okay. Some dartboard it looks like there's a not including the Bullseye. There's four sections in one pie slice. Yes like little slivers and to get white ones. Right. So the white black pause are, yes k. see the white and black punt. They are. The Num- The points value hitting inside of those corresponds to the number on the outside ring or so on this particular one I'm looking at twenty s at the top I have no idea if They're all the same. Okay. So if I get the two black sections that are below the twenty, I've earned rive removed twenty points from my start of five hundred and one you said, correct. Okay. Now, what happens by getting a little red slivers? So it depends the outside one that is double twenty. Okay. The smaller one is triple twenty. So that would be sixty. So hence, one hundred NATO. Remember I said one hundred and eighty s to high school. You can get through triple twenties is the highest goal you can get on a round because the bullseye, the red bull's eye in the middle fiftypoints, the outside green rang with twenty-five. So wait but how did we get to hundred and eighty? I'm still lost three triple twenty s sixty, sixty sixty. and. That's all I see. Okay. So don't want the Bullseye. The Bullseye is great for fifty points if that's what you need. Interesting what so so the highest score you can get is that Little Red Sliver in the twenty it's not the bullseye correct that's messed up this not messed up. It's just that's just how it is. People like the thing is is like Minez that segment is probably hard to hit the upper ones? It's a strategy game. As well because you've got to make sure you're getting the right points at the right time. Why does that matter? If you're just marching as quickly as possible from five, one, zero ride as you get to the end, then you need a specific number, right? Oh. So you can't negative. You have to get exactly five, hundred, one, the winner is zero. So what happens if you go negative? You lose. You Boston you have to re throw the round. So. If you needed fifteen points and you hit twenty points, you've now negate it that throw and you have to do it again. So how'd you get odd number? Because as you said, it's five hundred one. Where's the one? Does a one. There's one on the bullet next to twenty. I'm looking at ten five on this particular one. No wonder I'm confused. I must be going through a different dartboard now, with many more segments than the one, I was looking at okay I don't know what you will look at some. Silly American. I'm an ignorant. Hit in the middle and hot dogs come out the side and then a fi what goes off USA USA. Don't place called the crucible like where the big dogs places It is an absolutely wild affair. This is in the UK during Kim. And like music blaring and then it will stop. So third thoughts and everyone goes crazy. It's it. It looks like an incredibly fun experience I think is called the crucible where the main dots championships. But wherever it is like it's Super Super Fun really fun like the wild dots championship looks like a great time. This is all this almost everything you've told me as a is new news to me. I'm not making I'm not being silly I did not know almost anything. You've just told me it. You know talking about Chris Paul reminds me of a story. I. Probably told him the show before but when I was in high school I was sixteen ish and I had through various a series of random and I may be wrong about it being the crucible I don't know I. I know there is a theoretical crucible but I don't know if that's that snooka sorry crusoe's. That's another thing. But I'm not coming explains Snooka to you but that world championships which are held in various places, they collect an absolutely fantastic time. Right so that hooping and hollering and all that reminds me. So I'm sixteen years old I think it was ninety, six ish I mean as I would have been fourteen anyway it doesn't matter. The point is I was in Disneyworld for school related thing and might self in the people I was with the kids I was with we had a little bit of time to kill and it was one of the years that the World Cup was happening and I of the details but we ended up going to like this espn themed restaurant and bar. Just by circumstance, and shortly after we arrived, we realized it was like Brazil Holland game and we were sitting between like a group from each country that was visiting Disneyworld but went to the. Land In. So we're in the no-man's-land, but that was okay because we were like sitting square in the middle of these people like good naturedly just how heckling and hassling each other and hooping and hollering, and it wasn't until that moment that.

You guys have done a lot of different things but it is cool to see that your own musical film is coming out. Yeah we we had had About eight years ago we had done what we thought was going to be. Sparks next album and it was a narrative project that we had kind of been you know really enticed into working sort of a narrative way after another project that we done prior to that Called of Bergman which was a project which we were commissioned by the Swedish national radio to radio musical so after having done that we are also we. We were torn about what we wanted to do. It at the the period the next sparks album and and We were excited about the idea of You know a narrative again and so eight years ago we We came up with this Narrative story that's all music but a tied together by a narrative line that runs through it and without that was the end of it was. I mean it would come out and and as just a audio piece and then we went to the canned film festival also at that same that same year and we met the French director Laos Karak's who had used one of spark song's called How you getting home in his last movie which is called Holy Motors and in any case. A mutual friend had say said. Would you like to meet him? And we say it'd be amazing just to thank him for using our song in his movie and then we got along really well with them. We had a really really nice time. It can chatting and stuff and then we got back to La and we thought God. We have this narrative piece. Why don't we just send it to Laos? And just not expecting anything. And we send it do lo and behold he said came back two weeks later said. I'd really like to direct this. This is a movie as his next film run. You know we kind of were floored because Things don't tend to happen that way especially for for us. We've never had been completely written for the thing so it didn't take a lot of imagination for them to to judge whether we wanted to do it or not. It wasn't just the story. Was you know the whole thing had already been been basically written? But that's that's kind of incredible like that's the L. A. Stuff dreams are made of you know were on a pitch with the music and movie put together in someone like goes. Oh yeah that's exactly what I want that. That doesn't happen right. No one and also that it was done with just the creative types as opposed to having agents and managers and you know film companies involved to say yes or no is just the two creative principle sparks and Laos care acts and then with having that kind of unity between both of our sides and that much passion it you know and it's been eight years since he said yes and and in those eight years some amazing things happen like driver was approached to do the lead character and he said yes and we want what no. That's that's not possible. He was just you know an and it was right at the time is about four years ago that he said he really wanted to be involved and his stock was sort of rising at the time where he was. Now Mr Mr Star Wars man all of that and so we're going you know it was great for him. We're thinking is he ever going to want to do this? Film which is more you know. It's a really special not to say that Star Wars special. This is sort of a really unique project and especially for him but to his to his credit and it was amazing that that heap stuck with the passion for doing this film for over four years and and we met with him and discuss the stylistically. How we all thought the the singing of the characters should should be and he was really on the same wavelength with us just wanting it to be. You know not sort of Broadway in the pejorative term sense of Broadway. Words cut a tomorrow tomorrow. Know not being that kind of thing. It's more A. It's really a more stylized way of singing and more naturalistic. And he was totally on the same page with us and then at last year. The movie was shot It was shot in Europe in Belgium and Germany and then a little bit in Los Angeles and we got to see him performing these things and singing. These things that I had been singing for eight years I was doing. The Voice of the character now is handed over to Adam driver and it was just absolutely astounding. What he did both interacting way. And then as singing ways muffin. Varian ers the other star shoes. She was unbelievable. She plays a Opera Star in the film. And and you know it's just it's just amazing. I mean for us You know we`re. We're kind of naive in to that whole sort of world and for us to write something and then actually both have it made and have kind of these movie stars performing our material. It's it's really it was. It was just surreal. You know you kind of keep pinching yourself. How it it? It seems like it's a a labor of love eight years in the making with Hollywood stars of the finest caliber. I'm sure just like a lot of world cafe in sparks fans were excited for it to to find our way into our lives one way or another hopefully will then later. Yep Absolutely. We're talking to sparks here on world cafe so This is I mean. It's kind of remarkable Edgar RIGHT IS A. I'm a huge fan of his work. and you know when news came out that he was doing a documentary about you guys. I was. I was super curious about how that arrangement came to be in the sense Was that something that was a combat because it strikes me as you guys would meet him and become fast friends and then at some point you would admire his work for you and want to make Kentucky but maybe that's fan fiction. How did that? How did that actually work? Oh you're you're Kinda you kind of hit it right on the right on the head. Your your appraisal. No it was actually something very close to that. Edgar came to one of our concerts in la several years back and after the show came back and just introduced himself as a huge fan of the band and we were of floor. Just that was. That was enough knowing. You know. We really like his films as well as his sensibilities really cool and And the by the way I should say baby driver hot fuzz. Shaun of the dead like elderly. Who'd Scott Pilgrim vs the world? Yeah he's is is stuff is pretty pretty unique and really really special. E E corporates music also in a lot of his films in a really cool and special way and so we were just just that he that he bothered to come to show first of all and then to save it. He's a fan of sparks and he was introduced a sparks to growing up in England. But not from the first. Go Round with Komodo my house that he was introduced with the number one in heaven. Al Was the first album that he picked up on. Sparks obviously became fully immersed. Well he became not obviously but he became fully immersed after that after that point and so in any case that was kind of our first introduction to Edgar and then then we played another year probably a year later played in La and Edgar Reitz back at the concert again. Came back after the show and he said you know since last time I met you guys I was thinking. Would you guys WanNa be up for me doing a documentary on the on sparks and we kind of went would You know and So we said Be Amazing and it's not that we were kind of you know hoping to have a documentary made of sparse. We'd been approached before by by some folks and it was it was never kind of a an angle that we thought that that other people had proposed to us. That was gonNA really sore encapsulated. Ever were to be a documentary sparks. That it was the right angle or in the right person's hands because we we would rather kinda keep things more mysterious than have it just sort of be a kind of a dull bio about the band. You know they were born here and then they whatever and sew. Edgar's really convinced us that he wanted to do something special. That would not only kind of still keep a bit of the mystery of the band but also to do something in a in a way that was going to be sort of a calling card just to for him to get the Gospel out. Spread the Gospel about the ban because he's so passionate about sparks and we thought wow it's amazing and we just thought in his hands That it would be the right time the right person to be doing a documentary on the band so this is pretty cool. Pretty comprehensive and something special for us. I think that's fantastic because I think one of the hardest things when it comes to self reflection or letting someone take control and take a look back at your life is that you don't get represented properly you know especially if you're protective of your material That being said with all of the die hard fans. Let's play biggest. Hit just for the heck of it so people now and are reminded This town ain't big enough for the two.

"L seven took off and sparks became one of the greatest female electric guitar players for instrument, the flying the applying the a lot of guitars are very curvy kind of like the silhouette of a Bob Uhm woman. And a flying v is very angular. And it looks like you're playing something from the Jetsons. When we first started out people really didn't know how to react. There were a lot of just staring at us. Like, wow. What are these people doing? Are. They is irony is this real, you know, they look so rough around the edges, but as time went on people were just going completely wild. And. A lot of crowd participation. When we finally got roadies who were just really friends, they would be fending off the audience. There was no stage. We would just be playing on the floor where the audience was and it was just mayhem. And you know, we would really have to stand firm because our microphones were always getting knocked around pedals. We're getting stomped on and turned off and unplugged it was mayhem. But it was really fun. Mayhem. Audience. Oh, we would stop the shows all the time, and we have people ejected. And there's one live tape of me going like, okay. The bloody guys gotta go. You know security. The bloody guys gotta go. In two thousand one the wheels fell off we had no money. Grunge was waning popularity was waning. There were new bands coming up. We got rid of our manager. Our record label dropped us. You know, it's that thing that happens towards the end of the band's life. But I was calling. It an indefinite hiatus because I didn't quite think that we were maybe finished yet..

"We all sparked and we do this well i mean that's kind of sort of it's a byproduct of the new album is just the thing that if if someone was completely unaware of the band that can this album the new album be something that you'd say would represent for you to a new person to say just listen to this one album first as a starting point and and hopefully this album will be as compelling to someone who's unaware of sparks as may be take any outcome on in my house was back and it's time to someone that didn't know sparks either and so that's kinda like how we approach the sound just saying well we've got to do something that will will be something that will shake things up and we'll we'll hopefully be fresh and vital and two thousand seventeen ish for somebody that doesn't have any awareness of sparks and can this album hippopotamus represent that for them and with we think it does basically after 45 is you've made your debit debut album examining okay we're going to play out with a tight the title track from hippopotamus which is out on september eight funky aimed at helping me with it with with questionings sparks tell us about the title trucks hippopotamus whoa hippopotamuses a is a song a sequined chill kind of song about the guy who uh who is outside as a pool and discovers a hippopotamus in there and wonders of why it's there and then gradually there are more and more objects in in the pool uh a lot of things that by coincidence rhyme with have upon in this a volkswagen micra buses and an titus in drawn icos and uh and in the end you know most songs you have to have kind of a conclusion where this is where is this going for the song doesn't have that kind of conclusion it's uh.
